Question about NetGear WGR614 Router
I have had my Netgear WGR614 V.6 home router for 2 years now. Has worked flawlessly the whole time, except for the occasional power outage reset. Now, I cannot connect to internet while wireless suddenly. I have one laptop at home which still works while being wired through my Lan 1 port. I took my laptop to a WiFi hotspot and no problems. This leads me to a connection/software issue with the router.
I called my ISP first to check the modem. No issues there. Then I called Netgear support. They ran me through uploading latest firmware. After much time on the phone, I was told that I would receive a callback within 2 days with a possible solution because all options had been tried. It has now been a week.
I realized that the tech support never even had me reset the thing, so I followed the instructions on my router support page to no avail.
So, I am still stuck with a router that connects through the LAN, and the proper lights are on wired and wireless. It even shows that the network is connected on the PC, sometimes full, sometimes limited connectivity. I sure that I have messed up the process somewhere, but can't wrap my head around it. I have also shut off my windows firewall and disabled the router security as well.
